As early as 1963, a very dignified English classical music critic—William Mann (1924–89), the chief reviewer for The Times of London, who had seriously studied piano and composition in his youth—surprised his readers by naming Lennon and McCartney the outstanding new composers of the year, and comparing an “Aeolian” chord progression in their song “Not a Second Time” with the heartrending ending of Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde, about the loftiest comparison a critic could make in the heyday of the Mahler revival (Ex. 7-1).
